conditions. but first a look at the international markets today. >>> stephen a. cohen is a wall street legend. he runs one of the largest and most successful hedge funds, but the arrest friday of a top cohen deputy on insider trading charges refocuses attention on how federal authorities are building a case against cohen himself. we have the very latest. how is s.a.c. capital reacting to this arrest? >> they're actually showing quite a bit of support for michael steinberg, this man who was indicted on five different charges of securities fraud stemming back to insider trading. this is an outgrowth of a prosecutorial effort that goes back five or six years. most people think they're going after cohen personally. they sought to distance themselves from the nine employees who were implicated. but they said that michael steinberg is a highly ethical guy. >> yet, he's been on company leave since last september. >> that's right. he's an a paid company leave. if you read the tea leaves here, that indicates the company is supportive of him. they don't want him to suffer economically while he's
